Las Vegas continues to try and attract Amazon in hopes of being home to the online retailer's second U.S. headquarters.

Jackson said in a statement, "In recent days we worked with public, private and civic leaders across our community to tell the story of Cleveland's resurgence and pursue this enormous opportunity".

Winnipeg said in its bid that existing federal and provincial tax credits would amount to $1.76-billion in cash incentives for Amazon, and said the City of Winnipeg "would be at the table" to discuss additional tax financing for its real estate development, which could achieve "significant savings for the project". The city didn't meet numerous qualifications Amazon said it needed for the headquarters, including an global airport and on-site mass transit. The mayor said the city is backing the bid assembled by Gary and the Northwest Indiana Forum as well. The city is supporting a northwest IN plan led by Gary, but also sent IN a bid of its own. "Not only is the city and the large, regional group working on this bid excited for the possibility of landing one of the world's largest and most innovative businesses and the 50,000 jobs it could bring with it-the entire region came together to join forces and collaborate to show the world that Detroit was made to move". He believes the city may have a shot at success because of Ontario's announced commitment to funding more university spots in high-tech programs.

Several hundred communities were expected to compete for Amazon's expansion.

"Amazon, you've got so much going for you, and you'll find what you're looking for", the chamber said in its ad.

Amazon says it will make a decision in 2018. They also want space for up to 8 million square feet for facilities.

Toronto's bid proposes several sites in downtown Toronto as possible locations. With the release of the announcement expected next year, Deli Market News will continue to report.
